Sir Elton John announced earlier in the year he will be retiring from touring life.

"I can't physically do the traveling anymore," he said in a video announcement earlier in the year. "I want to be at home. I really want to spend time with my children at home. I've had an incredible life, but life is all about change."

The music icon is also scheduled to perform at the PNC Arena in Raleigh on March 12, 2019 and the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina the following day. Both shows are sold out, according to Elton John's website.
